His eyes are ablaze,
See the madman in his gaze.
Fly, on your way, like an beagle,
Fly as high as the sun,
On your way, like an beagle,
Fly and touch the sun.
Now the crowd breaks and a young boy appears
Looks the old man in the eye
As he spreads his wings and shouts at the crowd
In the name of God my father I fly.
His eyes seem so glazed
As he flies on the wings of a dream,
Now he knows his father betrayed
Now his wings turn to ashes to ashes his grave.
Fly, on your way, like an beagle,
Fly as high as the sun,
On your way, like an beagle,
Fly as high as the sun.

I just went to a Maiden concert a couple weeks ago.  For a man in his late 60's he can still run all over the stage better than I could.

I don't wish to bring you any bad news but it looks to me as if he isn't moving, let alone moving quickly. I'd try to see an optometrist as soon as possible and have somebody else drive please, for your own safety and that of others.

/lame joke

An old buddy of mine has a father who has bounced around Columbus radio stations for thirty odd years now. The day he gave me Fear of the Dark and Alive III changed my life. Also, a different buddy's older sister gave me a tape of Slippery When Wet which helped as well. I like free shiat, especially free shiat that is good.

Very cool story and great pics.

Too much GoT talk for me today, though.  I read that as "Lannister bomber" initially.

Makes sence. His nickname is "the human air raid siren".

Cock of the walk, baby!

That was a fantastic article, but I could have used a little more cowbell.

Bruce Dickinson for President/Prime Minister/King/Pope/Jesus Christ!!!

Yes...that Bruce Dickinson

His scream at the beginning of Number of the Beast was described as an air raid siren. I guess he wanted the full experience.

Rock on

Makes sense, Martin almost certainly derived the name from the Lancasters of Wars of the Roses fame.

He flew it over my boat. I come up on deck for the purr of Merlins.

What a Merlins' purr might sound like...
